Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired

Repulsion

Director: Roman Polanski
Cast: Catherine Deneuve, Ian Hendry, John Fraser

UK, 105’, 1965, black and white
English with Turkish subtitles

Roman Polanski followed up his international breakthrough Knife in the Water with this controversial and chilling tale of psychosis. Catherine Deneuve is Carol, a fragile, frigid young beauty cracking up in her London flat when left alone by her vacationing sister. She is soon haunted by specters real and imagined, and her insanity grows to a violent, hysterical pitch. Thanks to its disturbing detail and Polanski’s adeptness at turning claustrophobic space into an emotional minefield, Repulsion is a surreal, mind-bending odyssey into personal horror, and it remains one of cinema’s most shocking psychological thrillers.
